Should you or another female member of your family have an interest in joining DAR, please let me know and we'll put you in touch with a local chapter nearest your home. The chapter's registrar and lineage research committee chairman will both be available to help you with the application process.

If you would like to know more about DAR, please go to visit our national webpage at

With kindest regards,


This free lookup service has been provided by the volunteer DAR VIS committee members.
